“He is being held as part of investigations into Diezani’s multiple corrupt schemes,” an official told Premium times

It was learnt that Edun was named in U.S. court documents as having links to an alleged money laundering scandal swirling around Mrs. Alison-Madueke.

The court papers said he had ‘assisted’ various Nigerian businessmen with the purchase of £8.3m of prime London real estate intended ‘for the use and benefit’ of Mrs. Alison-Madueke in March 2011.

The former petroleum minister is held up in the UK for money laundering.

Also, property worth billions of Naira seized from her has been forfeited to the federal government.
